Todd Takes Test to See if He is Nomophobic – See if You Are Too
I love my cell phone. I am on it constantly. I always have it with me. I am getting carpal tunnel because I use it so much, but am I technically addicted to it? There is actually a word for that. The fear of being without your mobile phone is called: Nomophobia!
A recent study suggests that nearly 2/3 of us (66%) suffer from nomophobia. So, I set to find out if I am nomophobic. Caglar Yildirim at Iowa State University developed a test called the "NMP-Q nomophobia test". It's supposed to determine if someone is addicted to their smartphone.
